“Makes it so easy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

We stayed at Trailhead the week after Christmas with our two boys ages 9 and 7. I chose Trailhead because it looked lovely online, got great reviews, and has a gondola right outside the goes to the base of the mountain. It was the first time we have taken the boys skiing, and I wanted to make everything as easy as possible. We flew into Hayden and used Storm Mountain Express shuttle service to Trailhead. Then Black Tie ski rental came to Trailhead and fitted our skis right there in the lobby. Trailhead has a boot drying room for your ski boots at night, and stores your skis for you. The shuttle service was great. You just let the front desk know when and where you want to go and they make it happen! Merlin and Brandon, our shuttle drivers went out of their way to suggest restaurants for us and were very friendly, as were the front desk crew, Cat and Corrine. The bottle of wine in our room was a nice touch, which we enjoyed in the wonderful hot tubs! It was also great having a washer and dryer in the unit.

This is our second time this year to stay at Trailhead. My husband and I were here for 5 nights in Feb. 2011 and we brought our 2 college age sons with us this December for another 5 night stay. What a great place to stay! Less expensive than most of the ski-in, ski-out condos and so much newer and nicer than any of those!

The staff is wonderful - very friendly and always trying to please. They filled our salt & pepper shakers from our unit's kitchen when we returned from City Market and realized we did not have these crucial condiments !

The gondola to the base of the ski area is fantastic as is the place to store ski boots, etc. The exercise room is large and has great equipment. The 3 hot tubs & pool & locker rooms are awesome.

The condos are brand new and beautifully appointed. A 2 BR has a king size bed in each bedroom w/ a luxurious bath adjoining each bedroom. Everything in the kitchen is brand new and top of the line. The TV's are flat screen & brand new. You will feel pampered here!

I have been coming to Steamboat for years. Christmas 2010 was the first time I stayed at Trailhead Lodge and it definitely will not be my last. I love it! The staff was so friendly. Since it was the holidays, they went above and beyond to make sure all of our packages were placed in our room before we arrived. They had a wine and cheese reception for all their guests in the lobby that included a visit from Santa. The rooms were COMFY. Their outdoor pool, 3 hot tubs and fireplaces- AMAZING! And they have their own private gondola, which I could ride around on all day. Trailhead truly felt like a home.

Room Tip: We stayed in #5107 and loved it! It's a one bedroom, one bath with a den that has a pull out sof...

My husband and I stayed at the Trailhead Lodge over Labor Day weekend 2011. It was fantastic! The room itself was huge and beautiful - since we were on the top floor, our ceilings were twice as high and our patio was double the size of most of the other units. It was more than enough room for the two of us! Very comfortable space with a full kitchen if you'd like to make your own meals. The weather was absolutely perfect as well! Although we were not visiting during ski season, there was plenty to do in town. We visited the airshow at the Steamboat airport and the hotel offers a free shuttle to and from downtown so we spent a lot of time walking around, visiting the sidewalk sales and farmer's markets. What a wonderful weekend! We made use of the weight room and hot tubs and hope to visit again in the winter so we can make use of the hotel's private gondola! You will love your stay here. One side note: as this is a newer building, it is not in the ski village area but is a pretty short walk if necessary. Also, there is no restaurant on the premises so definitely make sure to buy all necessities (coffee, breakfast food, etc) to keep in your room.

Room Tip: Top floor (5th) offers high ceilings!

Thank you for your staying with us at Trailhead Lodge. We greatly appreciate your feedback and are pleased that your visit was enjoyable. We hope to have the opportunity to have you stay with us again in the future. Especially during the ski season when you can utilize our complimentary on-site ski storage, overnight boot drying systems, and load the Wildhorse Gondola right outside our front door and find yourself at the base of the ski area in 3 ½ minutes!

We stayed at the Trailhead Lodge for three evenings in August and had an exceptional experience. We had a one bedroom with den unit that was ideal for our needs. The accomodations were well appointed and the staff was very polite and extrememly helpful. The General Manager offered excellent suggestions for dining and activities throughout Steamboat. We look forward to our next stay.
